In this gripping historical novel, Dick Lehr tells the story of one protester in particular: Monroe Trotter, a black journalist who fought passionately for months to censor the film, challenging mass media and adding fuel to the nascent civil rights movement along the way. It was a public showdown that rolled America--pitting white against black, Hollywood against Boston, free speech against civil rights--and one that confronted the conflicted political soul of a still young America on the cusp of its greatest days.
